We are delighted to be able to offer for sale this immaculate example of the Bentley Mulsanne, which has an interesting history. Chassis 016596 was first registered by Bentley Motors Ltd, Pyms Lane, Crewe on the 1st of February 2012.
It is finished in unmarked Banarto Green with Twine Main Hide. Its veneers are Burr Walnut and it also has veneered door panels.
Following its registration and preparation by Bentley Motors Ltd the Mulsanne was put into service with the Royal Household, exclusively for use by HM Queen Elizabeth II.
It was used to transport her on various occasions over a two-year period.
The Queen used it when visiting 10 Downing Street to attend her first cabinet meeting, as part of the government's diamond jubilee celebrations where David Cameron greeted her as she arrived. It was also used to transport her to various events on the day of her Diamond Jubilee and there are numerous images of the car in use at various events on the Internet.
The car was issued with the registration number DK61 FHM whilst it was in service, however it was issued with a new registration number once the car exited service with Her Majesty.
We understand that Jack Barclay Ltd maintained the car, whilst it was in service with the Royal Household and they will service it prior to delivery to its new keeper.
The car was retired from her fleet in 2014 having covered less than 5,000 miles and it was returned to Bentley Motors Ltd, where some special features were removed from the car prior to its sale. Items removed included police lighting, communications, along with her coat of arms, which were inlayed in the rear door veneered waist rails – these components having been freshly veneered by the factory.
This car presents a collector with the rare opportunity to purchase a car that has been used to good effect by our longest reigning monarch.
